“Good spot for bar food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

A few of us hit up Sunset Cantina after a concert at the Paradise in the hopes of finding a hang out place for a few drinks and some snacks. We weren't disappointed. I've been to Sunset Bar and Grill before, but never to Sunset Cantina and found the two very similar. We ended up ordering the tortilla basket for the table which came with really good guacamole and salsa. We also shared the fried okra and pickles which were delicious as well. I ordered a frozen margarita, which was ok, but I kept getting hit with really strong salt flavors which made it not so great. Overall, great place to go for drinks (tons of beer and drink options) and snacky foods.

“1/2 Order Nachos.....YUMMY!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Went for dinner before Cirques show last night and was too full to have dessert. We both had a mug of chili then I decided to have a hlf order of the Border Nachos with taco beef added. They were all that and a bunch of chips! The taco beef was too sweet to my liking but didn't stop me from eating it....LOL. I tried their HOUSE diet cola and it was delic; not as sweet as other cola products. If ever in the neighborhood this is a place NOT to miss; especially with Noah as the waiter.....he was helpful and always on spot when needed but not a hanger.

“Very nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

Went here before the jack white show at BU. very busy yet we got table for four in 15 minutes, which was a pleasant surprise since we were informed it would be half hour. Lots of tequila and so many beers on tap. Food was pretty good and service was outstanding. Would definately eat here again

“Solid food but great beer selection.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012 via mobile

Solid food but great beer selection. Try a flight. I enjoyed the European and New England flights. While you are at it have a tequila. Good service, great drinks, solid food, and good atmosphere makes it a great place to go. Visit it.
